New Emails Reveal A Lost, Self-Destructive Michael Jackson In His Last Days

More than three years after his death, the question of Michael Jackson’s mental stability near the end of his life is still being debated.

More than three years after his death, the question of Michael Jackson’s mental stability near the end of his life is still being debated. 

The Los Angeles Times has obtained around 250 pages of messages, most between executives at Anschutz Entertainment Group financing Jackson’s “This Is It” concerts, describing the producers’ concern for the superstar’s well-being and even going as far as to ask whether or not the 50 concerts would be a colossal flop. 

Among the many emails was one from AEG’s Randy Phillips, who wrote just hours before Jackson’s last press conference that Jackson was “an emotionally paralyzed mess.”  He wrote:

“MJ is locked in his room drunk and despondent…I (am) trying to sober him up.”

In the end, Phillips reportedly described Jackon as “scared to death” and was forced to dress him.

AEG’s attorney, Marvin Putnam, refuted Phillips’ claims and suggested that the emails were exaggerated.  Lawyers for AEG told the Times that the messages reviewed by the newspaper were incomplete and leaked to portray the company in a negative light for letting the singer continue his harsh and demanding schedule under such conditions. 

Such messages will probably play a key role in two lawsuits coming next year.  The first, from the shows’ insurers, ask a judge to nullify a $17.5-million policy that they say AEG got with false claims about Jackson’s health and readiness to perform. The second, from Jackson’s heirs, is a wrongful-death suit that accuses the entertainment giant of pressuring the singer to carry on despite indications he was too weak.

A number of emails show insurance company Lloyd’s of London unsuccessfully pushing for access to five years of Jackson’s medical records in order to expand the concert’s insurance coverage.  Lloyd’s says requests for medical exams and blood work, as well as requests for written records and details about Jackson’s daily fitness program were denied or met “with no response”, as AEG suggested that Jackson’s physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, could give an oral recitation of Jackson’s recent medical history instead. 

According to the emails, Murray finally responded to the requests on June 25 at Jackson’s Southern California home, writing that “authorization was denied” by Jackson.  Less than an hour later, Jackson was dead.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
